Ayurvedic Cooking for Westerners - Book Review

by Amadea Morningstar

This is a great Recipe book for Western Ayurvedic Cooking. It is unique and ground breaking in many ways by categorizing modern western foods and recipes with the timeless wisdom of Ayurveda. Educating you on the Ayurvedic qualities within each recipe or food group, allowing easy understanding of what Western recipes may be healing for your dominant dosha.

Armadea Morningstar has been practicing Ayurvedic Cooking for more than 36 years. Her experience is completely obvious in both of her books on this subject The Ayurvedic Cookbook and Ayurvedic Cooking for Westerners.

This book is extremely well written and full of great recipes and healthy cooking tips regardless of whether you are a beginner or an expert of healing with food. It covers all aspects of dieting with easy, tasty, simple recipes for Western-style fresh food prepared with Ayurvedic principle.

Containing more than 230 recipes such as pesto, veggie sushi, veggie burgers, and yeast-free pizza; everyone will find something that inspires them. Her recipes are simple and easy to follow, using ingredients that will be more familiar to a western market.

“We are happy to know there is now an Ayurvedic Cookbook written completely for westerners. Highly Recommended." ~ Drs. Sunil and Shalmali Joshi, Ayurvedic Physicians and Teachers from India

“Amadea is a generous and experienced person whose concern for a fundamental wholesomeness in our diets and lives is clearly evident and contagious." ~ Deborah Madsion, Author of The Green Cookbook and The Savoury Way

If you are interested in Ayurvedic healing, and have a passion for good food, then I highly recommend Ayurvedic Cooking for Westerners by Amadea Morningstar.

It contains many wholesome and delicious recipes using ingredients that may be familiar and easy to find in a western market. In my experience it is best used as a companion to her other book The Ayurvedic Cookbook which has a more thorough introduction on the doshas and general Ayurvedic Nutrition principles.

Wishing you health & prosperity,
